Felivaru Kandu is a coral reef and quite large sandy channel in Maldives, which varies from 5m/16ft at the corners to 30m/98ft on the channel edge dropping away. An old, coral covered anchor can be also found near. If the current is very strong (>2 knots), it can be hard work finning against the current, but the site worth the efforts. The site is suitable for avanced level.
